Condolence Messages

  1. To the family and friends of Eugene (Lou Daddy), you have my condolences in your loss. Death is one of the most difficult situations families must face. It hurts so much when the family circle has been broken but be assured that it is only temporary. By means of God’s Kingdom, He promises at Revelation 21:4, “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.”

  2. My prayers & condolences to the family!

  3. My condolence to the Lewis Family:
    I met Eugene while working at OSUMC in the cafeteria always smiling and making me laugh or at the bank he would say yep, checking on my money! I am going to miss you my buddy RI.P. You will be truly missed.
